Baker-Henry Nature Preserve and Elizabeth Evans Baker Peace Chapel

In addition to the main campus and other buildings, Juniata owns the 316-acre Baker-Henry Nature Preserve on which is located the Elizabeth Evans Baker Peace Chapel. Architect and artist Maya Lin, who also designed the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Washington, D.C., and the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama, designed the Baker Peace Chapel. The Chapel is a place for both private meditation and public celebration. A grassy path ties two hilltops together: on one, a single, polished granite circle set in a bed of moss; on the other, a forty-foot circle of rough-cut English granite.
